When I ask the question in my signature: "Do you have a security clearance?", I am not joking. Aside from working with Bob Ballard on PT-109, where I was recommended to him as the best person around on the combination of World War 2 weaponry and warships, I have worked on the Marine Forensic panel as the weapons, weapon effects, explosives, and explosions expert. As part of the panel, I have worked on the loss of the Lusitania and HMS Britannic in World War One, the loss of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior, and the MV Derbyshire, along with identifying wreckage of Japanese carriers located by Bob Ballard off of Midway. Am I tooting my own horn, yes, but that also represents just the tip of the iceberg. There are times when reading the forum discussion can be very frustrating, as I am limited in what I can say. I am not sure if any other forum member has that problem, but at times, it does drive me nuts.

Yes, I am familiar with the section (unnumbered) of the Imperial Law (Forum Rules) regarding Claims of Authoritativeness or Expertise, forbidding anyone from citing to their own experience on a given subject (with certain named exceptions). It has been especially frustrating to me when someone is spouting total idiocy regarding law, legal procedure, principles of US government, or the like. One solution is to actually dig up reference materials to cite, but that is often more time and trouble than a simple forum post is worth. For those with a blog (and I am saving pennies to regain access to mine, along with other Moot benefits!), perhaps another idea is to make a blog post citing some of your Curriculum Vitae of relevant expertise, and then simply refer detractors to that? Or would that still break the Rules? Guess I'd want a Mod ruling before acting on it and maybe getting a suspension or something.
